In its Wednesday, July 26, 1967 issue, the Enterprise ran a photo described as a view of “the new bike path on West Eighth near Pine Lane,” an image reproduced here.
Looking at the upper-right hand corner of this photo, we can see the 8th Street water tower tank above the truck on the right.
Intrigued, I went to the intersection of 8th Street and Pine Lane and, sure enough, I could see the water tower tank, as shown in the second photo.
I suppose we might claim at least a tiny bit of “historicity” for that location as the first known photographed location of the historic Davis bike lane system.
Full size reproductions of each photo follow "the jump,"
